Largest caliber gun you use to hunt?

Savage bear hunter in 338 mag with factore equipped muzzy break.
Have taken it bear hunting it’s a joy to shoot with the break on it kicks less then my 12 gauges.


Some day the 375 ruger is on my list.

45-70

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Weatherby Mark V Stainless in 340 Weatherby Mag. Years ago I also had a Winchester Model 70 Stainless in 375 H&H Mag. No longer have that one.

Load the 45/70 up with Buffalo bore ammunition and hold on or garret ammo in a second would travel to Alaska and for the largest bears I would feel totally comfortable that I have. More then enough gun.
